AGUAÍ

State : São Paulo

Arms (crest) of Aguaí

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on June 18, 1975.

The red field stands for honour and daring. The bend represents the rivers that flow through the fields surrounding the city and is swelled by two snake's heads, as Aguaí means in the language of the local indians 'the bell of the rattlesnake'. The cross is the symbol of Jesus, patron of the city.

The shield is surrounded by branches of cotton and soy, the main crops around the city.
